Patient safety is an emerging focus within the mental health field. Using qualitative methods, the authors explored environmental influences on patient perceptions of safety in acute mental health settings. Participants highlighted the importance of staff presence, privacy, feeling safe from other patients, and access to meaningful activities (such as meaningful time alone or structured activities).
